Another 65-ish Mustang. No go on this one either. I think i'm too picky and too poor all at the same time.

Yep.  These DWS06's are muuuuuuch better.  Summer only tires turn rock hard and ride like garbage in the cooler/cold months as well.  I could spin 6th gear at 30mph in them in the ST and the GT without issue.  The Continentals spin down low in the cold but nowhere near as bad AND they dont ride like crap in the mornings after sitting overnight.  They dont offer QUITE as much warm weather grip BUT I still broke into the 7's on em and enjoy them in the twisties so whatever, they do what I need them to do juuuust fine!

Man, these Pirelli P Zero's are useless in the cold!  :3gears:

Yes sir, my rears are shot, I'm searching for something all season now. Rough as hell when cold and 0 traction.

I'm about to take my SS to get a quote on fixing some scratches from that K9 search.

What was that body shop that used to do really good work on fixing crashed hotrods?

People used to post about it all the time back in the day.  :???:

They're paying for it. I've just got to get some quotes.

Where are the best paint and body shops around here? :shrug:

Not that I'm aware of.  Steve Capley is who owns/runs the one on Dickerson and has treated me and my family fairly over the years.

Mine are toast, do you know where to get some deals on some new rubber? Discount tire has two of the all season P Zero for $479 mount and balanced. b2501a80ab7d79292e8ef266fe2043fe.jpg

@Chris I buy all my rubbers from Discount Tire.  Search around for the best deal you can find and then they will beat it.  They even use online only deals plus shipping for discounts.  Grab some nice all seasons that you can enjoy for quite a bit longer and are safer/more comfortable in the colder months.
